They're M3 ducts. They are actually white. I originally was just playing around to see if it would look good, and it grew on me, though I still have the occasional mention about them.

Thanks man

Ebay. Bought from SELMA USA. Fantastic quality. I would buy from them again. $350 shipped.

There was a small knick in the bumper on the body line in shipping, but I just fixed it before painting. Came with all hardware needed, and came pre-drilled (this was my only fear).

Thank you guys for the kind words! Couple more things to adjust / work on when I get back. Summer will tell.

The shade of it sure is. As mentioned, we didn't dilute the paint enough so the sparkles in all of the base colors show up more in well-lit environments making it look a lighter shade. The color itself is exact match. I'll be wet sanding and redoing the top color layer when I'm back in town.

They're wonderful wonderful wonderful. I had Potenza RE-11's (discontinued) on before, and they are very comparable. Not great on life, and a little bit on the loud side, but makes the car handle turns like an absolute champ.

Car looks good. I was always nervous to try the m3 rep front bumper with my halogens, but I think you're pulling it off.

Did you plastidip or vinyl the bottom of your rear bumper? looks better than some I've seen.

I had the same fear. Actually almost bought the LCI headlights I wanted at the same time, but just going to wait on it still.

But thanks bud, it's Plasti-dip. It took 4 tries before I was satisfied. I didn't like following the body lines the way you would when standing or viewing from up close. Took a lot of "eyeing it from a distance" (at least that's what i'll call it). I didn't want to mess up the clean look the stock bumper could still provide.

Yeah, I might try doing that to my rear bumper if I get the m3 rep front and an exhaust, if I'm looking for something more aggressive. I'd like to get the mtech rear, but they're pretty pricey and I don't really dislike my rear bumper. I'd rather put that money toward new headlights and/or some upcoming maintenance and/or powdercoating my wheels gunmetal. Car looks great man. I think a few more mods and you're set!

I considered Bridgestone Potenza RE760's because they were the successor to the Bridgestone Potenza RE11's that I would choose before. Too short of life though.

Michelin PSS should look even meatier than the Falkens in the same size.
